Literacy Home Learning

Published Tuesday, May 01, 2012.
Last updated: Tuesday, May 01, 2012

For tonight’s home learning I would like you write me a 100 word challenge and email it to me. You have two choices:

  • Tell the story of Oliver Twist in 100 words! Tricky, but it can be done! You will need to choose your words carefully to get all the main parts in. You will need to use complex sentences to include as much detail as possible.
  • Write a 100 word report of our visit to the solar cells in secondary science last week. What did we learn? What did we then do with solar energy back in class? The best report will be published in the Patana news on Friday, Although if you want to be published you will need to get your article to me by tomorrow.

It was a sunny day, about 39-40 degrees. We went up the the roof and all of us was chatting about what the solar cells would be like . After walking for a few minutes , finally we reached the top. The white floor was reflecting enormous amount of sunlight into our eyes. Sunglasses! How could we forget. Next we approached the solar cells. Mr. Taylor introduced us to it and told us facts like how much energy it made. He also said it charges all the science laptop and T.V. After that we went into the science lab , Mr. Taylor showed us some interesting equipment such as , solar furnaces and an air powered car. As we went back all of us thought how interesting science can be.

Sorry, it's a little over 100......

A Report on how electric energy is produced from solar energy.

Last Monday, 23 of April in the afternoon 5B went to secondary school to learn about Solar cells and how solar energy is used to power up laptops when there is a power failure. Mr Taylor explained to us how a solar cell works. Solar cells are used to absorb sunlight and the energy is stored in the form of electrical energy in the cell. There  are wires connecting the solar cells  to the power distribution box, when there is power failure the electricity generated from the solar energy is used to charge laptops. We borrowed an equipment with magnifying glass that absorbed sunlight. We tested how the equipments work by placing it in the garden and keeping a bowl of water under the magnifying glass. We noticed the temperature of the water was raising at different intervals and was more at noon, it started to cool down later.

Oliver Twist in 100 words

Oliver was born in a small town near London in the 19th century. He lost his mother soon after he was born. Oliver was brought up in the child farm until he was about eight years old. Farm authorities wanted him to start working and sent him back to the workhouse. But Oliver made a mistake of asking for more food when he was starving. But the authorities were ready to offer five pounds to anyone who’s willing to take Oliver as a trainee. Eventually he was sent off with a coffin-maker. He was not happy to work with them after a while and decided to go to London by walk. He faced many challenges initially and met a kind person later who was ready to help him. With his kind care and other friends he learnt to read and write.

9 year old orphan Oliver Twist escapes to London after a hard time working for cruel bosses. He meets the Artful Dodger who leads him into a criminal gang led by Fagin. He gets caught stealing a book, however, the rich book-shop owner Mr Brownlee defends and adopts him. Fagin's friends evil Bill Sikes and his girlfriend Nancy kidnap Oliver but Nancy feels sorry so tells Mr. Brownlee where to find him. Bill murders Nancy in anger and the Artful Dodger leads the police to find Bill. Whilst escaping Bill accidentally hangs himself and Fagin ends up getting hung in prison. Meanwhile, Oliver lives peacefully with Mr. Brownlee.

Last monday on the 23rd of April 5B went down to secondary to meet Mr Taylor, the head of secondary science. He taught us what a solar cell is used for. We use solar cells to charge our laptop so we don’t waste much electricity. The laptops needs sun energy for the solar power. That’s why we have it connected to other things and not straight into the laptop, it wouldn’t be able to charge at night since there is no sun. That’s why we get it loaded into a battery holder first so we can still charge it at night.

It is one word too long

My 100 Word Report

It was a very hot Monday morning when we walked through Secondary heading towards the solar panels, which were on top of the Secondary Science labs. When we got to the top, the sun was reflecting off the floor, which made us squint a lot. This was even worse because I forgot my sunglasses! Mr Taylor told us about how the solar panels worked. The electricity went down a floor to some batteries and the batteries then stored the electricity, which could then be used to charge equipment like laptops and to work the TV. It was a good idea because you are not releasing CO2 into the atmosphere.
